I'm excited to share a new song with you, "Blessed".
An original vocal and musical arrangement, using only the words of Jesus from The Beatitudes, Matthew 5:3-12, concluding with Hebrews 12:2.
Meditate on the words of Jesus, and remember that through all the persecution that we may face, Jesus looked with joy towards the prize. What is the prize that Jesus longs for? A people who love Him because they choose to, who are devoted to Him by choice, who are prepared to go through trials and persecutions for His name's sake, to love what He loves, and hate what He hates... to be moved by what moves Him. Those people will be given an everlasting name.
Father God has promised His Son a bride, and she will not hesitate to lay her all down, to be united with her Bridegroom.
Running through the core of the song, you will hear a deep resonating sound, reminding me of God's heart beat, who so loved the world that He sent His Son, and so loved His Son, that He redeemed for Him a Bride, paying the ultimate price for her waywardness, by dying in her place. Oh how deep, incredible, and beautiful is His love. Thank you to my brother Martin Bankart, who recorded and produced the instrumentation, conveying the vastness of eternity over space and time, that is in God's hands alone.
Love and blessings to you, and be free to download at your will.
